Enterprise Architecture Trends according to the EA Connect Day 2016
On October the 6th, LeanIX hosted the 3rd EA Connect Day at the Zalando Innovation Lab in Berlin with over 3 times as many attendees as last year. The EA Connect Day has been a conference favored by many Enterprise Architects in the last years as it has become a venue to exchange ideas and gain new insights into modern Enterprise Architecture.
"To see how the EA Connect Day grows from year to year, establishes itself as an industry event of the enterprise architecture scene and brings together an ever increasing number of innovative heads is something very special for us," says André Christ, founder and Co-CEO of LeanIX.

As the conversations were very interesting so, we would like to give you a summary of the event as well as a quick recap of the speakers.
Architecture Management between historically grown IT and agile development
At the 2nd LeanIX EA Connect Day in Berlin Aneta Nowobilska and Andreas Joebges, both from Axel Springer, presented a type of architecture model suitable for companies that want to develop quickly, flexibly and successfully digital products despite a historically grown IT landscape. Here digital platforms are an approach to the transition to flexibility. The resulting importance for the role of an architect and the architecture management in the field of agile development was demonstrated.
Before Christmas LeanIX invited to one of its EA (Enterprise Architecture) Connect Days which took place in Basel, Switzerland and was organized in cooperation with some of our clients. These events aim at local networking and informal exchange cross-companies. The focus is laid on learning from each other.
Our host this time was the assurance company Helvetia. The location was the ideal place not only for interesting and diversified presentations but also for an informal exchange among the representatives while having a nice snack and an Apero. Representatives of 12 companies from the regions Basel and Zurich were interested in Enterprise Architecture, some of them already had made experience with EA.
